Wow, how quickly time flies. I just realized it’s been two months since my last blog post. I haven’t been up to much, just a few weddings and portrait sessions here and there. I really do intend to blog them, but I just get so busy doing other things, then get lazy, and don’t get around to posting my latest work.
I’ll have to save the weddings I’ve done recently for another post, hopefully in the next couple of weeks or so, but we’ll see how my time-management skills meet the challenge.
A couple of months ago Shannon and I got together to do a shoot that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. A 1940’s Pinup Art themed shoot. I’m such a fan of the style from the 40’s and 50’s. Shannon also happens to be a fan of that style. Back then they would paint girls on the noses of fighter planes and bombers during WWII, and they also made quite an appearance in calendars and such.
That said, most of the art was kept relatively family-friendly. And that’s what I was going for. Nothing risqué or inappropriate, but fun, bright, lively portraits that contain the feel of the era before color television and digital photography. Photos that don’t look so much like photos, but images that kind of blur the line between photograph and illustration.
It was my first attempt at this genre, and I think it went pretty well. Shannon LOVED them, and so did all her friends. So I’ll save you further reading and just post some pics.
The bike got cut off in a few shots because we were working in a small one-car garage. Really tight quarters. But the shoot went well, we had fun, and we both are pleased with the result. I see some things to improve on, but that comes with time and experience. I’d like to do some more shoots like this and see what I get.
Hopefully I won’t be MIA for so long. Lets try for another blog post within the next two weeks, whaddya say?
Until then, leave me some blog-lovin’ comments below this post, and hit me up on Facebook!
